DescriptionFormer OC Military Intelligence Brig.-Gen. (res.) Uri Sagi dropped out of the Labor primary race because of sexual harassment allegations, he admitted on Thursday.

“Yesterday, I was told there are rumors, and I found myself in a situation where I cannot respond, because I don’t know who said what and what their motives are,” he said.

A woman approached Labor chairwoman Shelly Yacimovich this week and told her Sagi sexually harassed her nearly 40 years ago, Channel 2 News reported on Wednesday night.

On Wednesday afternoon, Labor sent out a message that Sagi was withdrawing from the primary for “reasons of family health.”

Sagi told Army Radio that no one told him to quit the primary, and would not comment on Yacimovich’s actions.

“Everyone deals with conflicts in the way he or she learned from experience,” he said. “I have my own way to deal with crises.”
